The Case of the Love Commandos

Crime / Mystery eBooks of the Month

The Case of the Love Commandos Synopsis

The wonderful fourth outing for Delhi detective Vish Puri ('the Indian Hercule Poirot' Financial Times). These books are little gems. They are beautifully written, amusing, and intensely readable . (Alexander McCall Smith). When Ram and Tulsi fall in love, the young woman's parents are dead set against the union. She's from a high-caste family; he's an Untouchable, from the lowest strata of Indian society. Young Tulsi's father locks her up and promises to hunt down the loverboy dog. Fortunately, India's Love Commandos, a group of volunteers dedicated to helping mixed-caste couples, come to the rescue. But just after they liberate Tulsi, Ram is mysteriously snatched from his hiding place. The task of finding him falls to India's Most Private Investigator . Unfortunately, Vish Puri is not having a good month. He's failed to recover a cache of stolen jewels. His wallet has been stolen and he's having to rely on his infuriating Mummy-ji to get it back. And to top it all, his archrival, suave investigator Hari Kumar, is also trying to locate Ram. To reunite the star-crossed lovers, Puri and his team of operatives must infiltrate Ram's village and navigate the caste politics shaped by millennia-old prejudices.
